Keep it Clean: Don't Let Laundry Pollute the Ocean

You’ve thought about the pollutants in your laundry soap, but what about the pollutants in your clothes? Those can reach the ocean, too. A recently-published study, which you can read more about at the end of this article, found that synthetic fiber clothing releases around 700,000 micro plastic fibers in a wash cycle. These synthetic fibers often end up in our oceans. 60 percent of modern conventional clothing reportedly contains synthetics. We need alternatives.

At Rawganique, we use natural fibers and manufacture clothing with traditional skills. We don’t process our plants or our products with chemicals, because we won’t make anything at the expense of the environment. Putting our clothing through a washing machine won’t hurt anything- except the clothing, maybe. Check the care instructions first. 

Looking for an eco-friendly laundry detergent? you can make one with our organic soapnuts. Just pop them in boiling water for about 5 minutes. You can reuse them to make more detergent or an all-purpose cleaning solution. You’ll never have to wonder if your detergent is natural or chemical-free again.
